Burrata Mozzarella and Heirloom Tomato Salad

This summer I cannot get enough of tomato and mozzarella salad - ensalada caprese.  Ironic for anyone who knew me back in the day when it was my most abhorred food.

Everybody knows how to do a caprese salad but what you might not know is that there is a kind of fresh mozzarella called burrata.  My friend's husband calls it a cross between mozzarella and butter.  And it is just as divine as both.  I paired it here with some of the miniature heiloom tomatoes that Trader Joe's carries, good olive oil, fresh basil and plenty of salt and pepper.  I could eat it every day!
